VC 42042 423A clasp lock

Good morning from a newbie Can someone please explain how the sliding lock is meant to work as my 42042 seems to swivel on its own axe rather than just sliding from one side to another ? Many thanks in advance :-) Cheers Peter
I'm not sure I understand your question, the clasp on the Overseas

"folds" on to the other end to close, it doesn't slide.

Alex, yes it does on my 47040 but on the 42042 ther is this small 'sliding' part of the lock which it appears is faulty. Cheers, Peter

have a small locking mechanism, it is a square piece with the Maltese Cross loge engraved on top. Peter,  1. this lock should be slid to the "open" side, 2. then the 2 sides of the bracelet are snapped in place 3. the lock should slide into the center of the clasp, which is the locked position 4. the half Maltese Cross cover can be closed to cover the locking mechanism The lock/square piece of metal should not rotate on its own axis. You may need to get it fixed. Best Regards, Dan P.S.  Welcome to the Lounge!

Precisely, the small square part rotates so it seems it needs some attention at the doc... Many thanks, Cheers Peter :-)

Well, after trying souce a pre-owned clasp, I sent the watch to VC, to be quoted  1430 Euros JUST for the new clasp  ( not bracelet ) sad!!!!  HOW can they ever justify such prices ? This does make you reconsider if to continue with these marques ....beautiful as they are wink
